There's a difference between hypocritical contrarianism and picking a niche you genuinelly like and sticking to it.
If darkwave and art deco become mainstream again I won't suddenly start liking reggaeton and corporate memphis instead. I might scoff at the most dickless commercial attempts at it, but would still enjoy the sudden increase in production of the thing I like.

Send them PM saying how they are one of your fav artists and you look up to them and ask them to share their WIPs and sketches and ask them pointers how you could achieve same sort of execution

Pixel art is when a single pixel makes a noticeable difference. These are just abstract low resolution drawings.

Is it true the best way to learn how to draw humans is to study pictures of naked men? Sounds kinda… gay. What do I do if my parents see?

Draw a urn in the corner. They won't care if you don't draw a flopping penis you fool.
You were right, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was. My dad asked and I told that this is how artist learned back in the day. He was just happy to see me do something other than lay in bed.

>"surely there must be a better way than drawing boxes and reading"
>do all sorts of unnecessary bullshit only to find that there isn't a better way
You played yourself
I'm just following how to draw characters I like tutorials on YT.
Boxes and construction are a meme for begs.

Learn to draw from observation first then just use memory and reference to build your characters with LINE, value and FORM. You can add colour later if you want but it’s form anyway.

Keys to drawing can be a good start for newbs to get the observation fundies but don’t get discouraged as the book can be a bit daunting with too many exercises and info. Essentially learn to measure visually which should be in the first chapters but I don’t remember.

Drawing from life continuously WILL build your visual library. You can go there with construction but all the great draftsmen drew with countour and line relationship from their visual library and observation. Ingres, Delacroix, Hergé and so on.. it’s the natural way to draw. Just do it, observe and “draw the longest line you can remember”.

I definitely made the back of that that character's skull a little shorter than I think I should've (which doesn't help in my eyes, anyways), but I get the chin complaint.
Ironically I started messing around with this because I wanted to see how far a face could be reduced to a circle shape without making circle-heads. Looking at it now, dropping the chin out entirely is too much.

I think maybe a midpoint between 1 and 2 would look best, as long as there's a somewhat definable chin it'll look less like a blob and more like a face. If you're looking to flesh out your style then I'd also suggest looking at styles that influence you or are similar to yours to see how they approach faces, and then try to imitate them. Usually the best way to solve a problem is to take another artist's solution lol.

The truth is anon, you can do it. The only things holding you back are you and the things you choose to believe, really. If you do the work and stick to the plan, you can make it anon. Making it or not is all on you.

Not AI.
Not your genes or lack thereof.
Not your situation.
Not your IQ.

Do the work today, tomorrow, and the next day. Then keep going. Life is hard no matter what path you choose, so just get on with it already. Life is passing by, so live instead of passively drifting along.

The truth is that there's not magical book or course that will teach you perspective and anatomy and proportions.

There's not magical mental jedi trick.

I can easily teach you the fundamentals of proportion, of anatomy, of perspective in like 1-2 hours.
Or like 20 minutes.

The issue, always, is that there's not shortcut to that shit.
Just a massive amount of boring repetition and grinding and more grinding at anatomy books and charts.

There's really nothing else to it.
It's boring.
It's lame.

But there's not shortcut.

Teach me
okay fine. give me a video course on figure perspective, or a any perspective course that'll actually help me to draw characters in perspective. i won't be lazy anymore, i want to make it
Anatomy for the Artist by DK. Has bone drawing over flesh on this kind of laminated paper. Also really nice anatomy drawings and photos. There's also the atlas of human anatomy and surgery.
I am too lazy to grind anatomy books because reading is dumb. I want to draw pictures, why should I bother reading?

Instead I grind anatomy pictures.

Time and time again, it's the same lesson over and over: Meaningful art is made by autists purely driven to create something.
Commercialization may make more money but won't ever actually touch anyone in an emotional way.

where do i find this movie rarbg closed down
It's pretty low but I don't know if I would call that shoestring. Tetsuo: The Iron Man was filmed with $100,000 in 1987 wracked with production issues and the props were made from literal trash. I would love to see a modern attempt at this shoestring budget.
I guess shoestring is in comparison with American Godzilla movies(200 million)

How do I break the habit of always wanting to draw small on digital? I don't like it when I can't see half my drawing when drawing big
Make a canvas that is huge and scale the brushes up the same amount, like if you normally do 1000x1000 and scale up to 4000x4000, then if you usually use a 8px brush, scale up to 32px
Then you will feel like you are just drawing on a smaller canvas like normal, it just happens to actually be bigger than it feels like it is

yeah actually, while drawing this i realiced i usually make a lot of lines that dont really add to the drawing, but they kinda just there witouth me noticing, does someone know of a way to do less not really usefull lines? they end up dirtying my drawings a lot
I can't because that would break NDA
I can't because that would be unauthorized disclosure of classified information.

>There is one thing not to do, and that is simply to drift along with the daily routine, making no extra effort. You will soon find yourself middle-aged, having done nothing more than routine jobs, and being little farther along than you were years ago. The extra effort is the difference between the great mass of mediocre artists and the comparatively small group of very good ones.
>And in Art, study can never stop. You will find sketches galore in the studio of the good man, with the paint quite fresh. The mediocre artist's sketches are old and dusty.
>I have seen so many middle-aged artists still hoping, whose samples are frayed at the edges, and thumb-marked with time. Sometimes it has been a matter of years since they sat down and actually did something to give their hopes any promise. They are plodding their lives away at something they hate, and doing nothing about it. These are the men who never seem to have had a chance. The truth is, they never seized a chance.

OK now do it without tracing and color picking, so you actually learn something.
